DIY Cleaning Wipes: Safe, Cheap, and Easy

DIY Cleaning Wipes: Safe, Cheap, and Easy

We have never used those prepackaged cleaning wipes in our house, but now that I’m cleaning up after a messy toddler’s meals three times a day, I can see the appeal. I use these DIY cleaning wipes to keep my one-year-old’s high chair tray clean, and they work great!

GMO Film: GMO OMG

GMO OMG

I don’t talk a lot about political food issues in this space, but I have some very strong feelings about GMOs in our food supply. Usually I keep those sorts of articles over at Eat Drink Better, but I wanted to share this documentary film review with you guys, since a lot of you seemed excited when I mentioned on Facebook and Twitter that I was going to see it.

I am not actually a big fan of new year’s resolutions, but I am a fan of treating the new year as a chance to start healthy habits. For me, the difference between a resolution and a habit is huge, and it’s important. A New Year’s resolution is something sort of vague like “eat healthier” or “lose weight,” but a habit is something that you commit to practicing on a regular basis until it becomes as much a part of your life as brushing your teeth in the morning. I want to help you make a daily green smoothie part of your routine.
